Raiden - Dark
Dark Raiden is a very special character in the game. He has a passive ability that we wish we have on each of our characters or at least part of it. He heals from DOTs as Fire, poison and bleed, he reverses the frostbite and gets more power instead of being power drained. Also, if he is confronted with Sonya Blade Kombat Cup, he instantly gets 3 bars of power instead of being tagged out. In addition, he also heals from any Dark Magic (often applied in Towers).
Now, it all sounds very nice, however, Dark Raiden is not invincible. There are many characters (eg Tremor - Aftershock) that can skip his passive, or just have better damage over Netherrealm characters in general and quickly defeat him, because of his low attack and health.
He is best teamed with Kenshi - Elder God and Shinnok - Vengeful.
Corrupted Elder God: Reverse DOT & Power Drain - Bleed, fire and poison will heal Dark Raiden instead of damaging him. Power drain gives power instead of draining it.

And here is a video review of Raiden - Dark:
Amazing for towers. He can solo any inferno debuff (assuming its not timed) at low fusions. He a fast attacker, and love tagging him into kenshi's, kitana's, literally any debuff like power drain or DOT. He hits really fast and x-rays come natural
